Gretzky to Lemieux Posted June 25, 2015 Share Posted June 25, 2015 Trade 1: To Buffalo: Lack and Jensen To Vancouver: 21st overall pick Lack by himself is worth more then the 31st pick but less then the 21st so we send Jensen as well. Hopefully they will accept. Trade 2: To Toronto: Bonino and Bieksa (add in Stanton if they want a bit more) To Vancouver: Bozak and Torontos 3rd round pick I know that Bonino has a great cap hit, but I would rather have Bozak at 4.2 then Bonino at 1.9. Bozak is a legit number 2 center and could anchor our second line for a few years until Horvat is ready to take over. He's also only 2 years older then Bonino so he's still relatively young. Toronto needs defence and we need to clear some cap space so we send Bieksa there as well. I think that he would waive to go to Toronto because it's close to his hometown and I'm pretty sure he grew up a Maple Leafs fan. We also get their 3rd round pick in this year's deep draft. Trade 3: To any team he waives to: Higgins To Vancouver: 2nd round pick Higgins is a great 3rd line winger that could put up 15-18 goals and 40 points a year. He's also a great leader and responsible defensively. We now have 2 first round picks, a second and an early third. We could either move up in the first round with our 2 picks or stay there. We also clear some cap space which we can then use to sign Franson while also getting a legit number 2 center to play behind Henrik for a couple of years.
